Form & Verdict
German challenger; he was the only one to give Maljoom a race in the German 2,000 Guineas (1m, good) in May and winner was an unlucky fourth in the St James's Palace next time; this fellow also raced at Royal Ascot, when keeping on for a creditable fifth of 15 in the Jersey Stakes (7f, good to firm), and the step back up to 1m looks a plus; firmly in calculations.

Respectable efforts in defeat in Group races last year and likewise when a 3l fifth of six to Perfect Power in the Group 3 Greenham at Newbury (7f, good) a fortnight ago; however, he'd be a shock winner today.

Sole win was at this track in a novice stakes; useful form kept to Group races since but no match for Angel Bleu at Longchamp (7f, heavy; best form) and well beaten in Saudi Arabia seven weeks ago; major work to do.

Form & Verdict
Won at Sandown (7f, good) last July on sole 2yo start and fair third of six in Listed race at Chester (1m2f, good to soft) on second run this season, before being well beaten in the Derby; it's possible this headstrong sort will be suited by the drop back to 1m but others have less to prove.

Recorded an emphatic win at Sandown (7f, good) on sole 2yo start; along with Cresta he failed to settle in steadily run Feilden Stakes on reappearance, finishing fourth of six; may prove more tractable with the outing under his belt and/or granted a truer pace; remains open to progress.

Form & Verdict
Won the Group 2 Champagne Stakes last year and back to form on second run this season when 2l seventh of 11 in the Group 1 St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm); with a clear run he'd have probably beaten Berkshire Shadow, who was a neck ahead in sixth, and although it was a blanket finish the form is working out well; strong claims back down in grade.

Narrowly won the four-runner Group 2 Champagne Stakes here (7f, good to soft) last month and also stayed on well when third in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket (7f, good) 14 days ago; there can be optimism he'll improve again now tackling 1m and he's respected; unraced on soft/heavy.

Prominent-racer who is trained in Norway, where he has won in good style on his last three starts; some respectable runs in Dubai early this year but limitations were evident then and are likely to be exposed once more.

0-6 since winning last year's Coventry at Royal Ascot but he's run well on all three starts this year, finishing a close sixth of 11 in the Group 1 St James's Palace at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm) two runs ago before a Listed third at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) where he didn't help himself by hanging left; in the mix, especially if staying straight this time.

Made it 2-2 with a smooth Listed win at Newcastle (1m, AW) in April and bounced back from his 2,000 Guineas run when going close off a lofty mark in a handicap at Sandown (1m, good to firm) four weeks ago; that performance reads well in today's context and he could have more to offer, too.
